How Do Cyanoacrylate Adhesives
POLYFIX® cyanoacrylates (one-part adhesives) have
been designed to cure by reacting to small traces of surface moisture or
dust present on layers. Instant cyanoacrylates cure very quick at room
temperature, eliminating the need for costly ovens or curing equipment. Gap
fill ranges for cyanoacrylates are 0.015mm (0.006") to 0.5mm (0.02").
Temperature resistance ranges from -60 to +260°C (-75 to +500°F).
How to remove cyanoacrylate?
Cyanoacrylate instant glue is a strong, fast curing
adhesive that sticks to anything almost with in seconds, so it's easy to get
accidentally stick fingers or skin together. For removing dry glue we may
use acetone or nail polish remover which is easily available on chemist
How To Remove Super Glue from Skin
For fingers and most body parts, you can remove the adhesive by soaking the
skin in warm and lukewarm water and then slowly peeling away the glue. Don't
aggressively pull stuck skin apart because your skin is more likely to tear
than to detach from the glue using this method. If necessary, apply a small
amount of acetone using a cotton swab. Since acetone is toxic, avoid using
it if possible and only use the smallest amount needed to remove the glue.
If you stick together lips or eyelids or instant glue gets stuck on an
eyeball, it's best to contact a physician. Do not use acetone and also do
not panic and call doctor immediately. Youll basically have to wait
for your cells to lift away the glue on their own.
Can Cyanoacrylate adhesives bond
Cyanoacrylate adhesive can bond almost everything but
there are some tough applications like bonding on HDPE, LDPE, PP, teflon,
foam, mirrors and greasy surfaces is not possible, but in some cases it may
bond by applying special grades. There is bond failure in parts that have
Why Glue dries after some time in
months unused or closed bottles?
The shelf life of cyanoacrylate adhesives is limited
up to few months depending upon grades, pack size, quality and curing speed.
So after expiry it is definitely going to be dried.
How should I store my Cyanoacrylate?
For the best shelf life results it is recommended to
store unopened bottles of Cyanoacrylate in a refrigerator at 20 degree
Celsius. Once the bottle is opened it is best to store the bottle at room
temperature as storing in the refrigerator will cause any moisture
contamination to condense and prematurely cure the adhesive.
Why do you offer so many types of
There is no "one" perfect adhesive that
works best on all materials for all situations. POLYFIX® instant glue
offers different grades of cyanoacrylates for various types of bond
It may vary depending upon curing speed, viscosity, non blooming or
Are cyanoacrylates or their fumes
POLYFIX® cyanoacrylate adhesives are not toxic.
The fumes from cyanoacrylate adhesives can vaporize and do irritate
sensitive membranes like eyes, nose and throat. When these fumes come in
contact with moist surfaces they are immediately polymerized and become
inert. They do not penetrate into human tissue.
The cyanoacrylates are used while skin grafting, repairing the eye tissue,
in the situation of closed blood vessels and for stopping spinal fluid
Some people are sensitive towards the repeated exposure of
cyanoacrylates/fumes. These people can develop flu-like symptoms.
Cyanoacrylates or their fumes are not carcinogenic and removing them will
also eliminate the symptoms.

Do I need to hold my glued pieces in
place with clamps?
Polyfix® Instant glue will form a tough bond in
about 10 to 30 seconds so you can usually just hold pieces in place until
the bond sets in about two minutes.
Why does the nozzle on Polyfix®
CA bottles always block and how can I keep them from blocking?
The POLYFIX® CA in the tip of the nozzle is
reacting with moisture in the small orifice and hardening. Normally once the
instant POLYFIX® CA hardens the consumer will take a pin and stick it
down into the nozzle to open it up only to find it blocks up even quicker
the next time. What happens is the pin scratches the inside of the nozzle,
which allows even more POLYFIX® CA to stay in the nozzle causing it to
block up quicker. This process will be repeated several times until the
nozzle is no longer able to be used and gets thrown away.
